Many younger children like to play a game similar to baseball called teeball. To accommodate the younger children, the bases are only 40 feet apart in a squareshaped field. Find the distance between home plate and second base in teeball. If necessary, round your answer to the nearest tenth.

With home,first and second you have a right triangle, legs = 40
Hypotenuse=sqrt(40^2+40^2)
